The Song of the Stone Wall
2008-04-25 20:55:00
By Helen KellerCome walk with me, and I will tellWhat I have read in this scroll of stone;I will spell out this writing on hill and meadow.It is a chronicle wrought by praying workmen,The forefathers of our nation--Leagues upon leagues of sealed history awaiting an interpreter.This is New England's tapestry of stoneAlive with memories that throb and quiverAt the core of the agesAs the prophecies of old at the heart of God's Word.The walls have many things to tell me,And the days are long. I come and listen:My hand is upon the stones, and the tale I fain would hearIs of the men who built the walls,And of the God who made the stones and the workers.With searching feet I walk beside the wall;I plunge and stumble over the fallen stones;I follow the windings of the wallOver the heaving hill, down by the meadow-brook,Beyond the scented fields, by the marsh where rushes grow.On I trudge through pine woods fragrant and coolAnd emerge amid clustered pools and by rolling acres of rye.The wa...

The Amazing Story of Helen Keller
2008-04-25 12:17:00
Helen Keller was born in Alabama, U.S. on June 27, 1880. An illness diagnosed as 'brain fever' at the time left her deaf and blind when she was only nineteen months of age. She spent the first years of her life in isolation, cut off from the world and having little understanding of what was going on around her. However, in March, 1887, when she was less than seven years old, she met the person who was going to change her life. Anne Mansfield Sullivan, a 20-year-old graduate of the Perkins School for the Blind, came to their house and undertook the difficult task of teaching Helen. Soon the little girl grew attached of her teacher and the two became inseparable. The bond between them became stronger and stronger as time went by and it could only be broken by Anne's death in 1936.The amazing methods Anne used to help the little blind and deaf girl overcome her disability and become aware of the world around her are described by Helen in her autobiography entitled The Story of My Li...

A Prayer for Friends
2008-04-18 10:32:00
Lord God, as somebody so beautifully put it, 'friends are the family we choose for ourselves'. In a world where everything seems so unstable and brother turns against brother, there is nothing more comforting than the thought of having faithful friends who are always ready to offer us their help and support.You taught us, Lord, to love one another as you had loved us and that there is no greater love for a man than to give his life for his friends. Through your life and personal example you gave us a lesson on what true friendship means. Help us follow you and be good friends to our friends. Fill us with your Holy Spirit, so that we can find the right words to pray for them and to thank you for bringing them in our lives.And as we pray, from the depth of our heart and mind, we say to you: Lord God, watch over my friends. Protect them from all evil and harm and never leave them when they are in need as they have never left me when I was in need. Be their helper and comforter as the...

Teach Us How To Pray
2008-04-18 10:25:00
Lord God, my mind is too small to understand the miracle of prayer. All I know is that it's the best way of communicating with you we've got so far and I thank you for it with all my heart and my soul. Teach us how to pray in an efficient way. Teach us how to pray so that our prayer is heard and answered. Work in our hearts, make our lives worthy of you, so that when we pray, we do it in such a way that is pleasant in your eyes.So many times we ask for irrelevant things, thinking that we know what's best for us. Help us understand that you know better, because to you nothing is hidden and you know all the things we don't know. Teach us to surrender to your will and pray like Jesus in the Lord's Pray er: 'Thy will be done'. Give us inner peace and comfort as we come to the realization that everything works out for our good and that, as long as we stick with you, nothing wrong can happen to us.Fill our whole hearts and minds with faith, hope and love and let the spring of everla...
How To Be A Prayer Warrior, by Michael Heindel
2008-03-31 19:22:00

Prayer warriors may not personally know the individuals they are praying for but they pray for them as if they were a beloved family member or friend. The prayer of a prayer warrior is specific to the needs of the individual in need of prayer, filled with love and compassion for the individual in need of prayer and made with complete faith that God will answer the prayer according to His divine plan.Being a prayer warrior is not always easy but it is something that everyone has the capabilities to achieve. The requirements of a prayer warrior include understanding the importance of prayer, believing that all prayers are answered, desiring to open your heart to all of God's people and most importantly being available to pray for others each and every day. The need for prayer never ceases and prayer warriors should be willing to offer...

Prayer for Our Loved Ones
2008-03-28 21:52:00
My Lord Jesus, you taught us that faith can move mountains. You also taught us that we should only ask and we will be given. While you were here on Earth, you cured ailments and diseases the doctors had given up on and you raised people from the dead. You taught us the power of prayer and belief and that we should pray with confidence, as if we've already received the thing we are asking for.To you, Master, I turn today, with my heart full of hope and confidence, knowing that no prayer will return from you unanswered and no request unresolved. Also knowing that all things work for our good and that you always choose what is right for us. In your name I pray to the Father of all, Creator of the Universe, and cry in the middle of the night: Father, watch over the ones I love! You know the depth of each one of them and you love them all with a love as fresh as roses and as unchanged as eternity. Never walk away from them. Never leave them struggle alone. Be their friend and comforter ...

Prayer for Peace and Wisdom
2008-03-25 14:55:00
 Dear God , our Friend, our Father. Fulfill the work you've started in our lives. Work in our church. Heal old wounds and remove old adversities. Bring us closer together and make us realize that you are one and that we're all one in your name. Help us overcome our earthly nature that longs for power and recognition. Make us never forget that our important work here on earth is to be messengers of your goodness and to reflect your love in everything we say and do.So many times we act like children, letting our feelings and desires overcome our reason. So many times we let minor issues blind our faith and darken our perspective. Help our spirit grow and make our faith stronger, so that we can fulfill the work you've entrusted us. There are so many people around us who need our love and support; so many lives that have no direction; so many souls that are like sheep without a shepherd. Help us bring the breeze of hope and comfort into each and every one of them. Make us wake up...

Quotes by Harry Emerson Fosdick
2008-03-17 09:50:00
 "For religion is something more than all the creeds that have endeavoured to express its thought. Religion is something more than all the organizations that have tried to incarnate its purposes. Religion is the human spirit, by the grace of God, seeking and finding an interpretation of experience that puts sense and worth, dignity, elevation, joy, and hope into life.""To exist is one thing; to live is another. Existence is comprised of the bare facts of life alone--the universe in which we live, our heritage and birth, our desires and their satisfactions, growth, age and death. All the facts that science can display before us comprise existence. But life is something more. Life is existence clothed in spiritual meanings; existence seen with a worthy purpose at the heart of it and hope ahead, existence informed by the spirit's insights and understandings, transfigured and glorified by the spirit's faiths and hopes. It follows, therefore, that while existence is given us to st...

What Christ has done for us
2008-03-17 09:38:00
 Jesus Christ : he has given us the most glorious interpretation of life's meaning that the sons of men have ever had. The fatherhood of God, the friendship of the Spirit, the sovereignty of righteousness, the law of love, the glory of service, the coming of the Kingdom, the eternal hope--there never was an interpretation of life to compare with that. If life often looks as though his interpretation were too good to be true, we need not be surprised. Few things in the universe are as superficially they look. The earth looks flat and, as long as we gaze on it, it never will look any other way, but it is spherical for all that. The earth looks stationary and if we live to be as old as Methuselah we never will see it move, but it is moving--seventy-five times faster than a cannon ball! The sun looks as though it rose in the east and set in the west, and we never can make it look any other way, but it does not rise nor set at all. So far as this earth is concerned, the sun is standing s...
Prayer for Spiritual Healing
2008-03-13 15:12:00
My Lord, there are so many unsaid prayers in my heart. But you can hear beyond words and understand beyond phrases. You can read our most intimate thoughts and see our deepest fears and desires. Let us not be overwhelmed by them. Let us not be tormented by the things we cannot put into words. Look beyond the surface and heal our hidden wounds. For you alone have unconstrained access to those places. You understand the cause and the effect and the source of all our problems and concerns. Clear the dark corners of our being and bring sunshine into each and every one of them.AMEN

Prayer for Comfort and Guidance
2008-03-13 15:06:00
My Lord, look at me from your divine sky and search my heart. See if there is any wrong in me and cure me. My soul longs for you and my being is thirsty for your living water. Bring comfort and hope into my life. Teach me your holy will, light the path in front of me, so that i know which way to go. There are so many times I stumble on this road, catch me and don't let me fall. Hold me in your arms like a loving father. Let the warmth of your love keep me warm in the cold winter nights like a cosy fluffy coat. When I feel lonely and scared, comfort me with loving words like a mother comforts her child. Pour into me the courage and the strength to go on through this life and make the best of it in spite of all the hardships and the adversities. Let me live my life in accordance with your will, so that I have no regrets at the end.AMEN

A Prospect of Heaven
2008-03-11 13:09:00
By C. M. WattsThere is a land of pure delight, Where saints immortal reign; Eternal day excludes the night, And pleasures banish pain.There everlasting spring abides, And never-withering flowers: Death, like a narrow sea, divides This heavenly land from ours.Sweet fields beyond the swelling flood Stand dressed in living green: So to the Jews old Canaan stood, And Jordan rolled between.O could we make our doubts remove,-- Those gloomy doubts that rise,-- And see the Canaan that we love With unbeclouded eyes.Could we but climb where Moses stood, And view the landscape o'er,-- Not Jordan's stream, nor death's cold flood, Should fright us from the shore.Taken from Hymns for Christian Devotion, by J.G. Adams and E.H. Chapin

Lord, teach me to pray again. I have drifted away from you. Bring me back like the good shepherd brings his lost sheep. Teach me to trust in you completely and to surrender my life to you. Never let me worry about anything, for you are the answer to all my worries and my refuge in times of trouble.You brought me where I am in spite of my many weaknesses and mistakes, you gave my life a meaning and you set my steps on this path of love and devotion.

Lover of Mankind
2008-02-19 12:04:00
Once upon a time there was a young prince who fell in love with a fallen woman. She had been a prostitute during her younger years and now she was torn by a merciless venereal disease. She had marks and wounds all over her body and her presence was accompanied by a foul smell. The inside and the outside were equally rotten, making her look like a living corpse, a dead among the living, a creature both scary and repulsive. More...

Prayer boxes can be a comfort in difficult times, a way to get rid of the daily stress and a way to get closer to God. Both spiritual and practical, they offer you an opportunity to write letters to the One who can really help you, to the One who is never going to abandon you. Friends sometimes betray us, our own mind can be treacherous at times. But God is always there. No matter what we do, what course our life takes, He will never fail us.More About Prayer Boxes

Psalm
2008-01-29 20:50:00
My Lord, why am I so frightened? Why is my spirit so weak? Where is the faith that can move mountains? Where is the strength that can overcome death? I know I am strong if you make me strong, and my weakness becomes strength in your presence. Touch my heart with a love beyond my understanding, and I will turn to you like the sun flower turns towards the sun. We feel small because we keep looking in the ground. We feel weak because we drift away from your life-giving force. Teach us to turn our eyes towards the sky, and find our strength and comfort beyond the clouds that darken the horizon. Let us drink from your spring of living water, let us reach further than our dreams can reach. AMEN

O Lord, My God, Will you hold my hand when this journey is over? Will you see me through the darkness and guide my steps towards the light?

No night is too dark, no abyss too deep and no mountains too high when you are there. Help me cross the point of no return.

Prayer is a bridge to an invisible world. It can take us further and further, beyond the limitations of our body and of the world we live in. It can take us into deep spiritual realms, where the soul feels as free as a bird and there?s nothing to stop its flight.In prayer we are strong, in spite of our weaknesses, because we establish a relationship with the source of all power, the spring of life and the creator of the universe.Praying is an activity about which we don?t have to wonder: ?Is it in accordance with God?s will?? When you want to do what God wants you to do, but you are not sure about His will or His plan, you can never go wrong with praying.An honest prayer is worth hundreds of books.

Prayer to Be Part of God's Plan
2008-01-19 19:12:00
My Lord,Help me understand that I need you every day, that my life is a mess without your guidance and your love. So many times I have gone astray, so many times I have been on the point of falling, so many times I have been driven away from you by my vain ambitions and desires. You saved me every time, you rescued me in the last moment, when I thought hope was gone. You were there for me even when I didn't deserve it. Words are too pale and too weak to express my gratitude.  Look inside my heart to my unspoken thanks, to the silent song of praise inside my soul.This world is sometimes a huge and scary place. But it is not so for your children. The orphans of this world find comfort in your fatherly arms, the sick and the vulnerable find strength beyond any human law, the lonely and the depressed find a new meaning in their life.You give us all comfort and shelter.  Even when our life seems in ruin, you make us bear fruit and bring  your light into the world. Sometimes we  don't quit...
